    Take a Koto Lesson at a Traditional House in Kyoto

    Take a Koto Lesson at a Traditional House in Kyoto I've had an interest in traditional Japanese music for a long time, so when I found out I could have the opportunity to have a private koto lesson in Kyoto, I had to take it. And I am so glad that I did. Harumi was a great teacher and explained the basics of koto very well. We played 3 songs together and Harumi served tea and snacks during the lesson.
    If you're a musician like I am, you'll especially appreciate the subtleties that make traditional Japanese music different from Western style and how playing koto well is very different from playing guitar well. Not to mention, playing koto is extremely enjoyable and relaxing - Harumi makes sure you get the most out of the experience. I cannot recommend this experience enough, and I hope to continue learning how to play once I've returned to the States. Domo arigatou gozaimashta, Harumi!

    Take a Koto Lesson at a Traditional House in Kyoto Taking a private koto lesson was the most memorable experience of my whole Japanese vacation. The lesson is in a traditional Japanese house in a neighborhood near Nijo Castle. Harumi was very welcoming and encouraging. Although the lesson lasted only a few hours, I learned a lot. I enjoyed playing koto with Harumi. The highlight was her playing a song at the end of the lesson. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to immerse themselves into Japanese culture.

    Take a Koto Lesson at a Traditional House in Kyoto

    Take a Koto Lesson at a Traditional House in Kyoto What a beautiful experience! Me and my girlfriend went along and had a wonderful time learning the koto. Harumi was really good fun to play with and be taught by. She was patient and funny! She took a real interest in us and making sure that we got the most out of the lesson. The house was beautiful and very traditional and she gave us some background on both the house and the instruments. Although in the suburbs its easy to tie in with other sights and attractions, both the castle and the fire ramen restaurant are in easy walking distance. If I would go back to kyoto I would definitely do this again despite having done it once. It was a real joy to play the instruments with such a helpful patient teacher. THANK YOU HARUMI!!!
